I hope to come to Cannes in July 2010. Do the open-air concerts take place at that time of year?
You are a little too early, for most of the open air evening music events around the Palais des Festivals is in August - the ‘Plages électroniques’ (DJ stuff) and Festival de la Pantiero (live bands)
However second half of July you will still have the classical evening concerts 17 to 30 July 2010 - Nuits Musicales du Suquet- fab setting, and you will also have a couple of nights of the International Firework Competition in the bay of Cannes usually done to music - very spectacular and better still, free.
